I love reading History. I find it more fascinating than most fiction. Although a registered Independent voter, my political and social views lean to a conservative outlook. Both major political parties are, in my opinion, totally bankrupt in ideals and intent. Both pull too far in their respective direction, and all have sold themselves to the highest bidders. A New England Yankee, I have great admiration for the founders of our nation. The early ones, Washington, Adams Jefferson and others put their lives on the line. Add Madison, Franklin and more. We are most fortunate that our Revolution/Rebellion was organized and led by educated, enlightened men (not to forget Abigail and some other uncelebrated women) who thought far into the future, and it took other men like Jackson, Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and FDR to maintain the hopes & dreams of millions. France's Revolution started well, but was taken over by lesser men, and fell into the Reign of Terror, and the Guillotine. Russia suffered Lenin & Trotsky. We were luckier! I cannot get through the day without reading the Comics. Regular comics first, then the Political 'toons. Unemployed for 35 months, I finally landed a good position with a good company! However, now I have less time to comment, (a relief to some) and less time to read other comments. Just typing out my gripes & diatribes gives me a feeling of being a little less helpless, and I feel better having said it. Sometimes I goof. I do like reading other comments: occasionally I learn something.

    In the movie, with Gregory Peck as Cpt Ahab, he managed to fire up his crew to go along with him to hunt down his personal nemesis, offering a gold dubloon to whoever sights the great White Beast. Only Starbuck, Queequeg and Ishmael felt a foreboding of doom. The rest of the crew cheered him and followed into disaster. Excellent ’toon, Matt!

    EVERYONE, from both of our polarized sides, should read MARTENS link. I certainly learned a few things. .

    I don’t think enough people realize that our Wealthy Elite are the driving force toward destablizing our government. Some of you might groan as I state this once again, but what is happening in our country today is very much like what befell France during the 1930’s. If you are interested, read chapters 5 thru 15 of William L. Shirer’s epic tome “The Collapse of the Third Republic”. The parallels are uncannily similar, the increasingly-widening social, economic and political divides are exactly what is threatening us.

    Yes, Gromit, this is true, which makes it all the easier for Putin. Putin may go down as one of the shrewdest Russian leaders in history, by simply using the social media platforms that allowed him to plant seeds of discord, to sprout in our already fertile soil, rather than bombs.

    That’s what Churchill and Stalin wanted to do with the top Nazis, but Roosevelt wanted the trials, to set a precedent.

    The attacks on our democratic form of government have increased so much over the past four years that I am now fully convinced that Vladmir Putin has either given or promised trump some good deals, or maybe he really does have an highly embarrassing video of him. trump, Barr, McConnell and many others have abused or ignored government regulations and Constitutional law so much that our country is in more peril than many imagine. All their actions fly in the face of long-held government protocol, necessary environmental and financial regulation, and they are baiting so many splinter groups that the national divide may soon become unbridgeable. This benefits Russia and China greatly, and other countries who would like to see the mostly successful experiment in democratic government fail. These men are worse criminals than some of Georgie Bush’s pals, and who will bring them to account?

    Any MAGA-Hatter who sees this ’toon will automatically think that Matt is just another member of the “Fake News” medias!

    The husband of a long time friend still supports trump because he “is looking after the little guy” My jaw muscles still ache from keeping my mouth shut.
